‘Davido not conferred with chieftaincy title in Delta’


‘Davido not conferred with chieftaincy title in Delta’

Less than 24 hours after viral reports that Nigeria afro-pop singer, David Adeleke, better known as Davido, was conferred with a chieftaincy title in Ibusa Community, Delta, a man, who claimed to be at the event, as dismissed the reports as untrue.

According to one Uwolo Amaechi Nwaenie, the singer was not conferred with a title but instead was adopted into the said family.

Writing on Facebook, Nwaenie said,

“My attention has been drawn to the trending story about a purported conferment of a chieftaincy title on Davido.
~ Uwolo Amaechi Nwaenie.

For the avoidance of doubt, l want to state that l was a guest at Chief Barrister Fred Ajudua’s (Onwa) residence on his invitation to host his son’s best friend – Davido.

I had no prior knowledge of planned event for the day until i got to Onwa’s residence. While in his residence, Onwa said he wanted to adopt Davido into the Ajudua’s family to straighten the strong friendship between his son Bobo and Dacido. I recall someone jokingly asked Onwa if he wanted to ”give chieftaincy title to Davido’ to which Onwa said a categorical No.

As the Uwolo of Ibuzor, l cannot knowingly offend our cultural sensibility or be a party to any act likely to desecrate, denigrate or offend lbuzor tradition in any way, shape or form. What happened today in Chief Bar Fred Ajudua’s residence was an adoption into the family of the Ajudua and definitely not a conferment of chieftaincy title. Any misconception or misunderstanding of the process is highly regretted. It was a great day of friendship and celebration between two great families and calls for measured reaction from those who relied strictly on social media videos and pictures.

Long live Ibuzor
